About Mr. Dillon

Mr. Dillon grew up in the prodigious mountains of Monterrey, Mexico. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Classics from Trinity College Dublin. During his undergraduate years in Ireland, he got to travel quite considerably around Europe, falling in love both with its history and culture. He then decided to pursue an M.A. in Classics at the University of Kentucky, where Latin was the only language of instruction and assessment in most of his courses.

During his two years as an English teacher in Monterrey, Mr. Dillon discovered that he had a hidden passion for children’s literature. In fact, Guillermo and his lovely wife Mariana held several book clubs in their own house throughout the year for children and teenagers in order to read and discuss the classics, or the biggies, as Mr. Dillon likes to call them.

Guillermo and Mariana have a one-year-old boy and are expecting a baby girl in January 2023. His hobbies include reading, learning speeches, playing basketball, learning celebrated quotes, going on cultural trips, and learning poems.
